Thank you so much for this great post Brandon. It’s well written and loaded with great information and links to other resources. I just signed up and am looking forward to starting down this path. I’m a business owner and have been for many years, however it’s not a business system which runs on its own without me being intimately involved in the day to day affairs. I essentially own a job. Looking to free myself from this within the next few years. My main strategy will be real estate investing. And my main resource for financial education will be your site. Thanks again!
